Korean Beef Bulgogi in Lettuce Wraps

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Deantini

This recipe is another winner from Toronto Star - we made it tonight and just loved it. A fun way to have the kids eat their lettuce, too. Beef needs to marinate 2-12 hours, so plan ahead when making this meal

This was very tasty and made easier as the local Asian butcher has the beef already sliced for bulgogi. I marinated double the quantity and put 3/4 of it in small portions in the freezer for later. Thanks for posting Deantini. Made for ZWT 6.
